Trees, Sun and Waterfalls in Big Sur

This past weekend, my husband and I decided to take an impromptu trip down to Big Sur. It was so refreshing to take a break from the city and spend our long weekend exploring the outdoors in the sunshine!

As we made our way down Highway 1, the views only got more amazing. We stopped at almost EVERY vista point to take in the sights, hike down to the beach and we even spotted some whales in the sea and condors in the sky! The journey down to Big Sur was so almost as amazing as the actual hike we were headed to… almost!

When we finally made it to our trail, we were amazed by the humongous redwoods towering above us and the panoramic ocean views. The water was so blue and clear, nothing beats a west coast beach! It was truly breathtaking! But don’t take my word for it, see for yourself!- below are some pictures from our hike.

Lastly, for any of you planning a trip to Northern California, I definitely recommend adding Big Sur to your itinerary! The sights are beautiful and the journey is almost as good as the destination!

a peek into our day at Big Sur:

Notice my geo print compression pants? Those are not only great for hiking, but I got an amazing deal on them. You can still find those at Old Navy or shop my favorite affordable activewear finds. No more boring black yoga pants! There are too many fun, bright active prints out there to resist!


  1. Never heard of Big Sur but the scenery and pictures were awesome. I’m so glad you guys are seeing California. I’m envious!

  2. Excellent photos of beautiful scenery. Looks as if you and your husband had a great time! Thanks for sharing this experience!
